  1. One of the important factors about the development of the Common Core Standards is that the standards are internationally benchmarked. In other words, they seek to bring our students up to the standards of the highest achieving nations. Schools alone, however, even with Common Core Standards, aren’t going to make American children more competitive in the global market. It will take family involvement to a higher degree than many people are accustomed to.
